Have I got a claim for injury compensation?

If you suffered an injury in the last three years and someone else was at fault, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make a compensation claim.

Do I have a claim?

Qualifying for personal injury compensation

People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like RSI are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.

Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident or work-related illness, proving a claim involves three components. It needs to be shown that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.

Calculate your compensation

The injury compensation you are likely to receive is based on the seriousness of your injuries. Our online calculator gives you an accurate estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries.
